Princeton Charter School teaches history, geography, and social studies, from Kindergarten through the eighth grade. Children are introduced to history through folktales in kindergarten and first grade. Historical fiction and non- fiction texts enrich and bring to life history in grades two through four. By fifth grade, students embark upon a course of study that emphasizes political, economic, geographic, cultural, and technological forces which have shaped the history of the world and of the United States.
As demonstrated by the progress indicators in the Charter, the curriculum follows the guidelines of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards for Social Studies. In addition, our area's rich history, offers the wonderful opportunity for PCS students to study history in a context that is familiar and tangible.
